Syntax

Infinity 

Description

Infinity is a property of the global object, i.e. it is a variable in global scope.

The initial value of Infinity is Number.POSITIVE_INFINITY. The value Infinity (positive infinity) is greater than any other number. This value behaves mathematically like infinity; for example, any positive number multiplied by Infinity is Infinity, and anything divided by Infinity is 0.

Per the ECMAScript 5 specification, Infinity is read only (implemented in JavaScript 1.8.5 / Firefox 4).

Examples

console.log(Infinity          ); /* Infinity */  
console.log(Infinity + 1      ); /* Infinity */  
console.log(Math.pow(10, 1000)); /* Infinity */  
console.log(Math.log(0)       ); /* -Infinity */  
console.log(1 / Infinity      ); /* 0 */
